The Preschooler

As the end of the school year is fast approaching don't forget to say your thanks.

There are variety of ways to thank teachers for their dedication, compassion and hard work.

Through the course of my career, I have received everything from gift certificates and spa treatments to homemade cookies and a handmade placemat. I've used the certificates and the cookies are long gone but I cherish every beautiful art-work and thank-you note given to me by my students and their parents in a 'now ready to explode' album :)).

While writing this e-zine I flipped though my album and found this quote:

"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." - Leo Buscaglia

On a daily basis teachers turn lives around and that is a great reason to show our appreciation.

I would like to dedicate this E-zine to all the teachers that entered my life since my early years as a preschooler and until today. Thank you!
